BIO: Raven is one handsome, sweet pup. Unfortunately, he came from a home where he was not properly socialized and learned to be very timid and fearful. We have been working with him, teaching him that not all humans are bad, and he is making great progress. We have been taking him out and about to experience new people, dogs, and places. He is gaining confidence and becoming a bit less fearful. However, Raven has a very HIGH flight response. On a walk, if he senses something that he does not like, he will do everything in his power to go home including some rather impressive aerial acrobatics, followed up with backing out of his harness. So, attention to him on a walk is mandatory. He just wants to run. He has many admirers and loves to be held but will not approach a stranger and will bark at strangers when they enter his house.

Despite his fears, Raven is learning to be loved by humans, and he is soaking it up. He is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle on the couch with you and sleep in the Big Bed as long as there are stairs or a ramp to get on and off to prevent him from jumping if startled and hurting himself. He may be okay to be crated at night, or just have a dog bed in the room. He uses the doggy door, but in this Wisconsin cold, he may choose to occasionally go potty on a puppy pad.

PLAY!?!… Raven LOVES to play with his fur siblings and pack run with other SMALL dogs. Raven is an Energizer Bunny. While playing, he wears out one of his fur siblings and then starts with another. So, he MUST have an energetic, FULL-TIME playmate. We think a well-socialized playmate would also help Raven learn good behaviors. He is not aggressive whatsoever. He loves his toys but happily shares. His future humans must have the energy to match his puppy-like energy level.

Raven is searching for that perfect furever home. A home that MUST include someone who will continue helping him become the confident, carefree pup he deserves to be. Raven will bond with HIS humans. He will bond first with one, then slowly with the other. So, patience with him is a MUST. If you are looking for a "couch potato" dog or a dog to take to the park and you don't have the patience or skills to deal with a reserved pup who does not willingly engage socially, please pass on Raven. His perfect home is waiting for him, and we are going to be VERY picky in assuring he finds it.

Our must-haves for handsome Raven include:

Someone who doesn’t work and is home a lot or works from home
Someone with time and patience to help him learn to love, be loved, and have more confidence
A calm home
No children in or visiting the home who are under 10 years of age
A fenced yard
A doggie door is a must
At least one young, small, playful, well-socialized dog for him to buddy with
No apartments, condos, or high-rises

============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a dachshund’s back or get bitten.

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed on the bio form. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.

There will be an additional $60 fee added for a required Health Certificate if traveling out of the state in which they are being fostered.

We will not adopt into CT, RI, NH, ME, or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have any issue with this, you will need to take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or Midwest. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
